It seems like Ottawa loves those defensive types of players... Chara, Volchenkov, Phillips. And the creative players are not nearly as popular (Spezza, Kovalev, Alfie pre lockout?''.

If Phillips continues his poor play. I don't want to see him next year. I know the MAJORITY of the team is doing very poorly but no excuse for him to be bad too.

Phillips played an absolutely tremendous game in Buffalo.

I cannot believe how this fan base could possibly turn on a heart and soul guy like Chris Phillips after so few games.

Unbelievable.

1 out of many. He is still a good defense man but his positioning has not been the same and his speed too.

He's been trying to do too much offensively and sacrificing his shutdown defensive play.
He played pretty well the past two games though.

Who turned on him ? He's still our next captain - if he wants it. And will retire a sen.

Phillips is not a #1 guy but he's played the part of one here for a few years. Dude has a long leash with the fans, ans he's earned every inch of it.

Because he's earned our trust to believe he'll come out of it and they haven't?

Maybe if we paired him with someone and kept him paired with that person. The guy has played with every other dman on the team. I do not care what you say, chemistry takes time. You can only truly learn your partner by spending time time together. Every practise, every game.

Yea, you'd probably want to replace him with some 18 year old prospect.

Phillips has proven he is our #1, to even consider getting rid of him is just ludicrous.

Well, well, well. People are now starting to notice his poor play.

He needs a true shutdown partner, thats his bread and butter, always has been, he's a top shutdown defenseman who should be playing a shutdown line/role. I knew the loss of Volchenkov would be felt but I didn't think it would be this noticable, he played amazing on Friday though I thought, and there's no way I would get rid of him.

If Murray is looking at trades I hope his top priority is finding a shutdown guy to play on the right side of Phillips.

just wait until kuba comes back, he'll be back and with motivation as i bet he is tired of being injured. look for him to be playing great hockey

i think if we start to lose a stretch of games after we are fully healthy, then we should panic or make the justifiable moves to either rebuild, retool, make a medium trade etc.

Kuba hasn't played competitive hockey in about 8 months and he was awful last year. I don't think he's going to make much of a difference.

He was immobile last year. How long did he play with a back injury that required surgery?

I know you keep wanting to replace him with every Tom, Dick and Harry that comes along, expecting that it will be easy. Then we do and they aren't even close being a competent replacement.

Let's say he comes back 100% healthy. How long will it take for him to play well considering he missed training camp and didn,t play since March before that?

The guy is going to be rusty, his timing will be off and he will still be a soft, rather-play-the-puck, 6'5" gentle giant.

If he gets involved in offensive rushes and let go his cannon shot that we don't see too often, he could help. But I have yet to see that in 2 years. Defensively, I doubt that he'll change anything. And it's not his fault, I think our strategy in the defensive zone is what is wrong. We are collapsing way to low and leave the point shots every time and then we get beat to loose pucks even if we outnumber our opponent near our own net.
